Christian Devotional – June 12, 2012

VERSE:
Matthew 18:21–Then Peter came up and said to Him, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Up to seven times?”

TRUTH:
Forgiveness is a core of the Christian life. We ask for God’s forgiveness in everything we’ve done that’s gone against Him. He also expects us to forgive others. How often do we rejoice in our own forgiveness and yet refuse to forgive others for the wrongs that they have done against us? How many times should we forgive others? Every single time for that is how often God forgives us.

RESPONSE:
Lord, help me to love and forgive like You do. It’s so easy to accept Your forgiveness and then not want to forgive others, but that doesn’t display Your love. I pray You will help me to be more like You in how I treat others.
